  • In the late 1970s/early '80s, Joe Jackson was one of the quintessential "angry young men" of New Wave, who brought skinny ties and chip-on-shoulder sentiments to rock & roll with a surfeit of verve. Along with Elvis Costello and Graham Parker (and less-famous names like Tom Dickie and D.L. Byron), Jackson married the urgency of full-on rock & roll to the personal perspective and literary sensibility of the singer/songwriter, as documented on his definitive anthology, the double-disc STEPPIN' OUT: THE VERY BEST OF JOE JACKSON.
  • Matched only by Costello for mercurial eclecticism, Jackson successfully flitted from style to style throughout his career, even though he might have lost some of his core following along the way. One can easily discern his evolution over the course of this collection. The frenetic, punk-inflected "Got the Time" and "I'm the Man" give way to the jump blues of "Jumpin' Jive" and the grand piano balladry of "A Slow Song." Disc Two finds Jackson at his most satisfyingly expansive on such early-'80s cuts as "Another World" and the title tune. And if the latter-day songs meander slightly, it's just further evidence that Jackson was ever the artistic seeker, who never settled into a rut and never stopped looking for new modes of expression.
